“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.”Viktor E. Frankl
“Change your opinions, keep to your principles; change your leaves, keep intact your roots.”Victor Hugo
Transformations occur all the time, everywhere. We can change in an instant, and also gradually. Usually, we’re experiencing both.
The question is: does transformation ever stop?
Where does a hurricane start? When we can see it from a satellite swirling below? Or when cold air molecules get blasted with warm evaporated water molecules?
What is money? is it a mule and three bushels of grain? Is it a Roman aureus coin? Is it SUPREME clothing? is it a collective human idea? is it 1’s and 0’s on a computer somewhere?
Who are we? Our likes? dislikes? Our personality? Our soul? Our job?
Things are continuously moving. We live in continuous cycles and forces, which mostly we aren’t aware of. History rhymes, as they say. For all we know, we’re experience things right now that have already happened in the past. Or maybe everything right now is completely new.
What ultimately matters is what are we doing to do? How do you want to change? If everything is constantly changing, so can we.
If you could change something about yourself (or your life) instant, what would you change? Do it. Why not? Maybe you don’t like where you are. It’s okay. I’ve been there many times too. The ending is just the beginning. Accept where you are, find a way forward. Change starts with you.
If you could change something gradually over the next year, what would it be?
Do that too. Use time as your ally. Spend five minutes a day on it. Go up to twenty minutes if you can make room for it. There’s no sense in waiting for change to come — it’s already here.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
